Hi guys ! What happen if an Olympic gymnast do their ring routine without the gymnastic grip ? and in what point is necessary to use the gymnastic grip on rings, how much it can improve or decrease your performance ? . Thanks

Grips are necessary for the swinging portion of the routine. The dowel in the end of the grip allows for smoother wrist transitions during giants.

Basically strength holds wouldn't be affected really but swings wouldn't be possible.
